I found an article that was created in 2006. When I looked at the subject's website in an archive dated before the article's creation, the text is identical to the article. The current website, having none of the same text, has a copyright notice. Can I tag the article for speedy deletion?

TheGGoose (talk) 20:08, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes, add {{Db-g12|url=source URL}} to the top of the page, replacing "Source URL" with the URL of the page you found the copyrighted material. Primefac (talk) 20:27, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

I found an article with text copied from its official website. The text was in the article since its creation and is currently comprised of half the article. It had comprised over half of the article in creation. The article today also has lead text that's not infringing. Should the article be speedy-deleted or have the infringing section removed instead?

It depends on the state of the article etc. Can you link it here please, or say what the name of it is? (tJosve05a (c) 18:06, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict)Hmmm.... sounds complex. The best way forward is probably to use {{copyvio}}, and follow the instructions, to get wider attention on the article. --Mdann52talk to me! 18:08, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

The article Hutson (album) has a short review copied from this link. Is it a potential copyright violation? TheGGoose (talk) 17:04, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

TheGGoose (talk) 17:04, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes. Copying the AllMusic review in its entirety is an unambiguous copyright violation. I'll deal with it in a moment. Huon (talk) 17:58, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Gnoufs, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page 20 minutes (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

I just discovered that the fact I removed in the article Coopersville, Clinton County, New York is genuine. But I guess no reliable source exists for this fact. Should the fact be restored? TheGGoose (talk) 15:17, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Agentmike41 (talk) 01:45, 31 January 2015 (UTC)Ok I recently recreated a page of SantApprentice using my own words this time. Also I fix the Synopsis of The Mysteries of Alfred Hedgehog and The Green Squad and removed The Green Squad Poster out. I will fix Matt's Monsters Synopsis with paraphrasing.

TheGGoose (talk) 15:17, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

TheGGoose, if there are no reliable sources that discuss the "fact," then it should not be included. You did the right thing. Primefac (talk) 15:34, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. TheGGoose (talk) 15:43, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
